This issue of Knitscene offers 23 hot knits, to give you a stylish head start on your summer knitting. Along with discussing her knitting journey (that includes knitting in L.A.'s standstill traffic), featured designer Grace Akhrem brings us a collection of four lightweight and breezy pullovers with interesting shape and color details. Bold design meets bright and bold colors for five out-of-this-world pieces, including fingerless mitts, a cabled cap, striped and color-block tees, plus Ramona Gaynor's Radon Pullover, which employs slip stitch to create bold diamonds on a backdrop of wide neon stripes.
Andi Satterlund explores the trials and tribulations of summer knitting and offers tips to keep you stitch-happy, no matter the temperature. When the days do heat up, lightweight linen, with all its unique properties, is the perfect fiber, and seven gorgeous garments, such as the Bokeh Tank, Gambeson Tunic, and Linum Tee, show it off to its best advantage. Fiber Artist, Caitlen ffrench goes one step further and shares her experience with growing her own linen yarn!
Rounding out the issue are several amped-up lace projects with three flirty tanks, a boatneck tee, oversized cowl, shawl, and Julia Farwell-Clay's Manchester Pullover, which makes clever use of i-cord to lace up the sleeves.
